Wine Joke of the Month - October

A woman and a man are involved in a bad car accident. Both cars are totally demolished. Luckily, neither are hurt.
After they crawl out of their cars,the woman says 'Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left, but fortunately we are unharmed. This must be a sign that we should be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days.'
The man replied, 'I agree with you completely. This must be a sign!'
The woman continued, 'And look at this,here's another miracle. My car is completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink this wine and celebrate our good fortune.'
Then she hands the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement, opens it and drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman.
The woman takes the bottle, immediately puts the cap back on and hands it back to the man.
The man asks, 'Aren't you having any?'
The woman replies, 'No. I think I'll just wait for the police.'
